You'll uncover some gems but once you get into the early 80's they will become rarer and rarer and rarer. If you make it all the way through the 90s, you are a tougher man (or woman) than I.

The 90s? Pffft.. if you make it through the '86 Dylan and the Dead tour then you'll do just fine.

That's funny!

They always seemed to think they were peaking at that very moment.

Hopefully Trailhead will think so too...

I really enjoy the development of the band. How they went from the heavy blues influence, singing harmonies and how that changed over time. Time is perceived as linear only.

Understood. I am a save the best for last kind of guy. Thus I think I'd like to hear Vince and old Jerry first, then Pig and Jerry the Ripper last.

Corrina first Cream Puff War last.
Samba first Viola Lee Blues last.
95 first 65 last.

If I went the other way, I'd likely peter-out at 1993. Also, it would be easier to get through a year like 1993 if I knew 88-89 were on the horizon rather than 94-95.

In any case, I am not taking the trip and you are! Good luck.

"If I went the other way, I'd likely peter-out at 1993."

What do you mean 'if'? There is precedent for flow going both ways.
